DSL

Sunrise, high up in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. As the first rays of sunlight strike the mountainside high above our campsite at 8500 feet of elevation, I am on the internet checking email. WHAT ? Yes, the local phone service provider Century Link was able to send a tech named Andy, out to get us hooked up. Unbelieveably, we now have DSL at our campsite ! WooHoo ! Here is a look.

The first thing we did was to turn off our Net Zero account that wouldn’t get on line most of the time. It was about eighty miles to our access phone number for them. They tried, but there were just too many obstacles in the way for them.

Here is a look at our router and phone handset.

We checked our line speeds and they are right up there where they are supposed to be at t1 levels.

We can now view photos and videos from our friends !

Hi,
Glad to see you back on line. The Wifi here was working well until more and more folks showed up. I was going to get the local deal but when the fires started and we didn't know if we would have to leave I didn't bother. So far we are safe here in Lakeside. The fireis about 55 miles from here and moving North really fast.
You are in a very beautiful area
